Glittery flower

I made the flower for this card a few days ago, but I couldn't figure out what the heck to do with it. I love glitter! Can ya tell? wink I stamped and cut out the flower 3 times, and glittered them using heat and stick powder and Martha Stewart crystal fine glitter. The layout was inspired from an old SCS sketch challenge, but I can't remember which one and I'm too lazy to go look wink.

-Stamps-Fabulous Flowers, So Many Sayings
-Paper-White and Black cardstock; Riding Hood Red and Pink Pirouette patterns DSP
-Ink-Riding Hood Red, Basic Black and versamark
-Accessories-Offray Ribbon, Heat & Stick powder, Martha Stewart crystal fine glitter, paper piercing tool, mat pack.

Oh, and Cheryl asked to see my Christmas tree, so here it is =). Can ya tell I'm a little bit of a Hallmark freak? My mom and I always hit for Hallmark first thing the day after Christmas biggrin. She has TONS of them! Her tree is gorgeous! Whoops, I just realized I chopped the angels head off, lol. The top strand of lights isn't working. I just got this tree last year, so I called the customer service number, and they said they would send me a new top (it's 3 pieces). Well it came a few days ago, and wasn't the right top...It would't fit. Only I didn't realize that until I had undecorated the top of my tree and had it off. So I had to redecorate it, and I get to do it again when the right top comes...oh well. My walls are Cranberry Crip BTW. I'm thinking of repainting though. This color looks really funny in certain lights.
Hope you all have a great day!

What a beautiful card! Everytime I see you use this flower, I kick myself for not buying it. :) The glittery petals and the colors, so pretty.

Beautiful christmas tree too and good for you for already putting it up. We usually wait until Thanksgiving, but yours looks so nice it makes me want to dig ours out. :)
